Guides to Lancaster

Penny’s Hospital, King Street, Lancaster

Gordon Clark has produced for Lancaster Civic Society 60 guides to Lancaster and its surrounding area.

They tell you about fascinating aspects of the Lancaster area that are perhaps less well known but none the less very worthy of a visit.

The guides cover Lancaster, Morecambe, Carnforth and some rural areas. They are short, informative, well illustrated and focus on what you can see while walking around the Lancaster area today. The guides are free to read online, print off or download.

The information in the guides was correct at the time of publication. The authors and editors will update them periodically when required. Comments on the guides and suggestions for additional ones are most welcome. Please contact the editor at clark4be@btinternet.com
